Petition Closed

Schnucks has plans to raze Griffin Woods, at Chatham and Washington in Springfield, to build a grocery store. The Park District has an option to buy 1.4 acres of the land for around $200,000 and create a park there, and voting to do so would allow them to start raising funds, which many in Springfield are willing to help with. Save this valuable urban green space from destruction!
